We were greeted warmly by owners Jean Claude and family. The villa itself is a 20min walk from the centre of aix. It was big enough for our family of 3. Kitchen is very small but usable. Good supermarket at Jas du Bouffon, a 5min drive away, alternatively there's a casino supermarket a short walk away. The pool is amazing and invaluable when the temperatures are soaring, our son spent hours every day in the pool. We hired a car, if you do make sure it's not too big as the parking space isnt huge, but very secure. The town of Aix is buzzing with life, plenty of shops, bars, coffee shops and restaurants to tempt you. Town of Cassis with a beach is worth a visit, approx 45min drive away. Lots to see and do, we loved it.
